It’ a little love from Henry the elephant today!  He brings Heart #6 to you today.  Henry Says was the first thing I bought from the Stampin’ Up! Spring catalog.

Henry-valentineI don’t know about you but I think Henry is so cute!  And since I collected elephants growing up I had to add this to my “collection”.   And today I’m have a super cute Valentine card with Henry sharing his love.  Here are the details.

  • Basic Gray card base
  • Layer of Pool Party card stock
  • Layer of Very Vanilla – stamp Henry on the Very Vanilla in Basic Gray.  Then stamp the hearts in Primrose Petals – the hearts were so easy to stamp so that they looked like they were pouring right out of Henry’s trunk.  I colored the outlined hearts with a Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Write marker.
  • Stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day(from the Wacky Wishes Hostess stamp set)  in Primrose Petals.
  • I cut a strip of Primrose Petals card stock and embossed it with the cross stitch folder from the Needlepoint Textured Embossing folders (do that with the Big Shot)
  • Stamp Henry on a piece of the designer paper from the More Amore specialty pack and cut him out.  And yes I “painted” his toe nails – just seemed like they needed it.
  • Not sure why but I seem to always want to tie something on his trunk – so I did – a piece of Pool Party Baker’s twine and a heart shaped Bitty Button.


This was the card I made as a swap card for my PAWS team meeting in January.  Hmm – now I’m wondering if I shared all the swaps from the meeting – I don’t think I did that yet.  I must have shared the make&take projects.

Have a happy day!
